Great teacher. Very patient and observant. He tells you where your strengths and weaknesses are and develops a plan to assist you in overcoming your weaknesses. My left hand is weak but the more I practice on the assignments the more I become confident in my success.

My son’s first lesson went really well! Mr. Charles was really accommodating - as we were running late and he patiently waited and completed our full first session. My son is already looking to his next lesson.

My approach to teaching drums will have you playing within the first few weeks of lessons. I teach with the focus on getting students ready to play in any sort of ensemble. Jazz, rock, pop, funk and free styles will all be discussed.

Drums were my first real hobby, and a great confidence-builder when I was growing up. I've spent many hours playing drums, and it's become a very rewarding part of my life. I specialize in teaching the techniques of playing the drum set, and I'd love to show you how to do it. So, sign up! I promise it'll be fun. You won't regret it.

Online Drum Teacher

Experienced drum teacher of 7 years! My lesson plan is simple : 1. we warm up with basic beats + rudiments + paradiddles, 2. we focus on rhythm + proper technique, and 3. we play a song that incorporates the techniques we're working on.

The time devoted to each portion of the lesson is totally adjustable. You will learn what you want to learn at your own pace.

About Ryan

Experienced cello, drum, piano, and guitar player of 20 years. Has a MFA degree in music composition + a BFA in music performance. Recorded professionally for tv shows such as "Glee," "Entertainment Tonight," and "Extra." Also records for "Sonoton Recordings." Currently resides in Los Angeles, Cali

I could not ask for more in a teacher. Ryan is amazing in every way. He has been teaching my 4 year old son the drums for nearly a year. When my son started lessons, he was actually below the minimum age for students, but he shared a passion for music that Ryan was willing to cultivate and be patient with.

Ryan is versatile in his teaching methods, creative, open, patient. Teaching a young student, Ryan adjusted to teaching music reading fundamentals with colors and shapes. He also figured out ways to correct, critique and build all the while building a young child's confidence.

Ryan provides a written evaluation of our son annually and has him prepare for two public recitals a year. Ryan integrates modern technology into the lessons to quickly provide feedback and create customized beats and tempos to practice to.

Above all, Ryan smiles and laughs. He makes every lesson pleasant and we treasure him, truly.
Matthew K.
Awesome first lesson with Ryan, he teaches at whatever pace you learn best at.
Dat T.
Ryan is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I had a great time learning guitar from him. Make sure you tell him what your goals are so he can help you achieve them.

Zach is very patient with him and also takes time to communicate with us about his progress and what we need to work on with him at home . After one particular class, my son came out of class beaming from the praise he had received over his progress. My son is inspired to practice his drumming during the week because he really loves taking the lessons. I would highly recommend Zach if you are looking for someone to inspire you future musician!"
